Good question but I don't think I qualify as a independent contractor. I don't get minimum wage or paid leave either.

Not sure about CA.  I think not. An agent passed out at open house just north of you. The head surgeries costs her almost 6 figures. We are raising money to help her to heal... I know she has no workman comp.

Hella,

It depends on the Brokerage and how they are set up.  I am not up to the latest laws on this, when we had our own firm, we did not buy Workman's Comp.  A

As Independent Contractors we don't benefit from Workman's Comp from the firm that hangs our license, because we are not employees.

In NH we do not need to carry it f agents that work under us are true independent contractors, that means no salary and no forced work hours.

Real estate agents are exempt from that here, but it is tough to have any other quasi employees without paying WC insurance and lots of other requiremtns.

I dont mess around with the government, I  pay all the fees and taxes on all of my people.
